Publisher's Summary

Neoliberalism - the doctrine that market exchange is an ethic in itself, capable of acting as a guide for all human action - has become dominant in both thought and practice throughout much of the world since 1970 or so. Writing for a wide audience, David Harvey, author of The New Imperialism and The Condition of Postmodernity, here tells the political-economic story of where neoliberalization came from and how it proliferated on the world stage. Through critical engagement with this history, he constructs a framework, not only for analyzing the political and economic dangers that now surround us, but also for assessing the prospects for the more socially just alternatives being advocated by many oppositional movements.

Monotone reader

This is a great book if you're interested in a western history of the rise of Neoliberalism or if you need to read it for school like I do. However this reader is terrible! Half way through every sentence he raises his pitch and ends every sentence on a low note. It was extremely annoying

Absolutely wonderful primer

David Harvey's Brief History of Neo-Liberalism rings more frighteningly true in 2018 than it did back when it was published in the previous decade. must listen/read for anyone seeking to understand the ideology which currently runs our modern world.

essential reading

this book is essential reading for anyone who loves politics or economics and wants to understand the rising of neoliberalism throughout the 20th and 21 century. this book offers a thorough, well researched critic of the neoliberal ideology and application throughout the world. my only complaint was that the book can go through dense information rather quickly at times

Brief Genealogy of Noeliberalism

Magnificent scholarship of the post-war order and an examination of foundations, limitations, and contradictions of the neoliberal project.

Essential introduction to neoliberalism

This is truly an essential reading if one is to fully appreciate how class, industry, and capital coalesced into neoliberalism; and the concomitant and compounding influence it has had on domestic and global markets and human potentiality. Very comprehensive overview.

Also, I found the narrator to be perfectly tolerable. Worth the investment, for sure.
